Get rid of the chip, put OEM back and the low end will go back to where Honda Engineers designed it. Those so called performance chips are a rip off. CAI is great, I hope you don't live in Calif or it will never pass smog.

You have the 2.7 L C27A4 V6? That can be bored out to 93mm. or 3.66" piston to make it a 3.2liter with 290 hp and 224 lb·ft torque. Man, that would be a damn rocket dude.

The bore out sounds v.interesting! If you know, could I retain the oem throttle body and valves. The oem top end would limit top output(and some low torque), but it would still be some improvement. That would be OK. However, if I would need a valve change, I woiuld be back where I have: no product supplier. I could go overbore and then consider larger throtle body. ?you think?
